Did that storm wake you up last night? Same here. It is 7 a.m., 50° headed towards 52°. Expect rain.
San Francisco Magazine published a very detailed account of the preassures that led startup founder Ilya Zhitomirskiy to commit suicide.
“In the Hollywood version of the story, the four friends would’ve holed up in their dorm rooms banging out code until they’d created a site that lived up to the hype… Last November, some 18 months after moving to San Francisco with his three cofounders, 22-year-old math whiz Ilya Zhitomirskiy was found dead in his Mission home, an apparent suicide.”
Over at the Bold Italic, they profile Charlie O’Hanlon of the namesake of Charlie’s place on 17th and Folsom Streets. When he is not fighting the SFTMA, Charlie can be found on his shop fixing vintage Honda motorcycles.
“Charlie has serviced countless vintage Hondas since opening his shop in 1998, and has witnessed the evolution of bike culture in one of the best places to be a motorcyclist. A New Yorker by birth, he didn’t start driving until he moved to San Francisco. He came here for art school, but had a hard time buying into the idea of being taught how to make art. So he dropped out, and then needed transportation to get to the various jobs he picked up, so be bought a bike.”
Stay dry out there.
